But is it a "memory". Is a conditioned response a memory? Do the original mice remember the shock? Do the offspring? Do we remember cave bears or is it instinct that tells us that dark places are not necessarily a good place to venture into?


why would you not consider a conditional response to be a type of memory. However you cut it information regarding our psubjective experience in reality appears to be passing down to future generations.

Interesting spelling. I like it.

I don't consider a conditioned (not conditional) response to be a memory because what is being passed on does not involve memory. The mice were stressed (shocked) and exposed to an odor at the same time. Their bodies produced stress hormones in response, as an autonomic response.

Through epigenetic markers (not actual changes to the DNA), that physical response is passed on. The autonomic response is passed on, not a memory. The offspring mice do not associate the odor with an electric shock. They do not remember the shock. Their body just kicks in with the fear hormones when they smell the flower. Sort of like how certain other autonomic responses kick in when a pretty woman walks by.

I've been wondering as of late whether or not some of these vivid memories I have of my early childhood are really mine or someone else's...
